Invoicing and Invoice Settlement
Enhancement to OAuth 2.0 authentication for configurable tax apps
Configurable tax apps now support certificate-based OAuth 2.0 authentication. Previously, only the client secret option was supported. This enhancement helps to meet your higher security requirement.
To enable this enhancement, submit a request at Zuora Global Support.
See OAuth 2.0 Authentification for Configurable Tax Apps for more information.
Changes to renaming HTML invoice templates
To rename an HTML invoice template, you can now click the Rename icon next to the HTML invoice template name to rename the template, and then click Save to save the change.
The Rename option previously under the more options icon is now removed from the options list.
Real-Time Reconciliation available on Stripe v2
The Stripe v2 gateway integration in Zuora now supports the Real-Time Reconciliation feature. With this feature enabled, the payment gateway can submit notifications to Zuora for the following event types on gateway objects, and the corresponding records can be automatically updated in real-time.
To enable this feature, make sure an OAuth token is created and activated for the intended gateway instance in the Gateway Authentication payment setting, and then submit a request to Zuora Global Support with the required information. For more information, see Real-Time Reconciliation for Stripe v2.
For more information about the supported Stripe events and the corresponding actions from Zuora, see Real-Time Reconciliation events for Stripe v2.
Support for refunding payments with credit balance during gateway reconciliation
A setting called Support refunding payments from the credit balance with Gateway Reconciliation is now available in Payments settings. If this feature is enabled, payments with an available credit balance amount can be refunded by using the credit balance during gateway reconciliation. This feature is only available when Invoice Settlement is disabled.
For more information about how to enable this feature, see Refund payments with credit balance in Gateway Reconciliation.
Google reCAPTCHA v3 supported for Payment Pages 2.0
The CAPTCHA challenge feature for Payment Pages 2.0 in Zuora is implemented based on the Google reCAPTCHA service. Google reCAPTCHA v3 is now supported, in addition to the previously supported Google reCAPTCHA v2 service.
To enable Google reCAPTCHA v3, submit a request to Zuora Global Support. If Google reCAPTCHA v2 is already enabled on your tenant, you need to disable Google reCAPTCHA v2 for Google reCAPTCHA v3 to take effect.
For more information, see Enable CAPTCHA.
